The real reason behind rising drug costs

To the editor: Back during the first term of George W. Bush, a prescription drug program became part of Medicare.

( “Drug prices surge even when rivals join market,” Business, Sept.1)

We can thank the Republican Party for that.

Attention seniors: Are you really, seriously considering voting Republican?
